Ueberschall just released their newest construction kit library: Blues Rock.
Here is what they say:
Inspired by the pioneers of the Delta Blues sound, modern Blues artists often blend elements of the original with elements of Rock. The result is a modern take on the Blues but with a very retro sound and Blues Rock captures that vibe in all its glory. This Elastik library is built around 5 extended construction kits and, with a ton of attitude, a bucket full of authentic Blues riffs, and a rhythm section born to groove, it's a perfect platform for you next Blues inspired project.
With 3.6 GB of sample data, and nearly 800 loops and phrases in total, each of these kits provides 5 main musical sections plus dedicated intro and outro elements. This makes the construction kits very flexible and full song arrangements can be built with ease. Instrumentation is dominated by electric guitars, with two rhythm parts as well as slide and lead guitar parts. The guitars are supported by acoustic drums, electric bass, and guitar FX licks. Tempos across the five kits span 74 to 120 BPM. The usual high standard of the recording signal chain ensures pristine sound quality but, above all, these sounds ooze attitude.
Flexible Construction Kit Format
For the electric guitar, each phrase is provided as two versions. An amped version provides Blues Rock tone that's ready to mix, while a line (DI) version allows you to add your own choice of guitar amp modelling and effects. For the bass, the DI and amp phrases are also provided and can be easily blended to create the perfect bass tone for your project. The amped bass recordings are big, bold and warm with plenty of bottom-end. Drum parts are provided as both pre-mixed loops for immediate use and as individual loops for bass drum, sub-bass drum, snare, snare top, snare bottom, hihat, toms, ride, crash, room and percussion so, if required, you can fully customize your own drum mix. And, of course, Elastik's powerful tempo and pitch manipulation tools allow you to easily fit the sample content into your specific project.
Modern Retro Blues
Blues Rock is perfect for songwriters and producers looking for inspiration for a modern Blues production but with a distinctive Garage Rock vibe and low fidelity feel. It's also perfect for media composers needing an instant flavour of Blues-infused Indie Rock for their next scoring project.
Elastik is designed for loop-based music production. The ReTune algorithm gives complete control over scale and key of any tonal loop, polyphonic or monophonic. This way, you can easily combine loops from different libraries. All loops in Blues Rock include information about the base key and tempo, making fast searches and immediate song-integration quick and simple.
